Honorable Alex Kozinski, Judge
Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals
c/o P.O. Box 91510
Pasadena 91109-1510

Subject:  Insider Sales at America Online, Inc. ("AOL")
          per Wall Street Journal, 1999/07/27, p. B-10

Dear Judge Kozinski:

The criminal  complaints which  we have  recently filed with your
office contain  a verified  excerpt from  the first  draft of our
AND RELATED  CLAIMS, JURY  DEMANDED, in re Mitchell v. AOL et al.
(not yet filed).

Since Mr.  James Barksdale, a member of AOL's Board of Directors,
chose to fall silent in the face of that draft,  and accompanying
transmittal letter,  several weeks  ago, we  are now persuaded to
believe that  he is  unwilling to  assist us in achieving a quiet
settlement of  this matter.   All other members of AOL's Board of
Directors were similarly notified, via U.S. Mail.

Mr. James  Barksdale, as  you may  already know,  became a  major
stockholder in  AOL -- by trading stock he previously held in the
Netscape Communications  Corporation, corporate  developer of the
highly successful  Netscape Navigator  software, in  company with
Mr. Marc Andreessen.

The article  published on  page B-10  in the Wall Street Journal,
dated July  27, 1999  (see attached),  now raises  the very  real
possibility that  certain  AOL  principals  are  moving  valuable
assets out of the reach of all federal district courts which have
original jurisdiction  over our imminent lawsuit.  See the latest
version of our Copyright Amnesty Program (copy also attached).

Since this  matter cannot  come before  you formally until either
final judgment  is reached,  or your panel grants leave to appeal
interlocutory order(s),  I am  exercising  my  legal  obligations
under  18 U.S.C. 4  to inform  you of  the possibility  that  the
insider sales  reported supra  may be  motivated by an attempt to
devalue assets  that will be required to secure my claims against
AOL and all of its agencies, assigns, and instrumentalities.

For your  information, we have retained a professional consultant
to assist us in finding suitable counsel to commence our law suit
against AOL and approximately 500 Doe's.  Candidate law firms are
reviewing a confidential summary of the case at this very moment.

Judge  Kozinski,   thank  you   very  much  for  your  continuing
supervision in  this important  matter.   You may  contact me  by
writing care of our Forwarding Agent (see criminal complaints).

Sincerely yours,

/s/ Paul Andrew Mitchell
